With the wave of digitization, web development is rapidly evolving. Every year we see many new frameworks and platforms for application development, each with their unique benefits. However, in order to build a better audience and improve inbound sales, you need to identify which framework is best as per your requirements.
It is relatively new but gaining a lot of traction among the community of developers. Vue.js works with the MVVM design paradigm and has a very simple API. It demonstrates minimalism to the extreme and allows you to use selective modules as per your requirements. Inspired by AngularJS, ReactJS, knockoutJS and RivetsJS, Vue.js updates model and view via two-way data binding.

AngularJS framework gives superpowers to HTML by adding all the necessary features required to build dynamic views (interactive user interface).
It gives the option to extend HTML attributes by the use of Angular directives. Two-way data binding is at the core of AngularJS. This essentially takes away all the pain of writing manual code for DOM manipulation.
Angular 2’s final version was released in 2016. It was completely re-written, also focused on mobile apps development and was a big success. From 2016 to 2018 it has graduated further to Angular 6 as a great improvement over old. After the release of Angular 7 in October 2018, it became the most preferred framework for enterprise-level apps.
On May 28, 2019, Angular 8 was released featuring differential load for all application code, dynamic imports for lazy routes, and Typescript support. Now, Angular is integral to the MEAN stack for web application development.

Developers might have noticed that React is the user interface behind Facebook and Instagram. This gives us a quick idea about how powerful React is for building large-scale applications of extremely dynamic nature.
React framework is best at rendering complex user interfaces with high performance. It deploys the concept of virtual DOM (Document Object Model). React utilizes a virtual DOM, which you can render at the client-side or server-side and communicate back and forth.

EmberJS competes with the likes of AngularJS and React when it comes to building interactive frontend user interfaces. It also has a very active community of developers.
Ember rides on the principle of two-way data binding like AngularJS. It targets the best of both AngularJS (two-way data binding) and React (server-side rendering).

When you google for Node.js frameworks, surely you might have come across Express very often. Express.js is among the top Node.js frameworks. It is an efficient platform for building robust applications and APIs. Express is also one of the four components of the popular MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js) for web application development. Here, Express serves as a middleware between the front-end, database, and back-end of an application.
Express is very flexible and lightweight and offers excellent possibilities in terms of using plugins, extensions and third-party databases. People often refer to Express as the server framework for Node.js as it creates an HTTP server for Node.js and supports the middleware functionality to respond to the HTTP requests. It has a superb set of documentation and enjoys great community support.

To build custom, enterprise-grade Node.js apps, Sails.js is a great fit. It mimics the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails but with support for the requirements of modern apps (i.e. data-driven APIs with scalable & service-oriented architecture). It is especially suitable for building chat, real-time dashboards, or multiplayer games.
